Here we go… Today is the september the 1st , Summer is about to finish and so are the summer festivals. I`m “lucky” to have millions of pictures to edit to keep alive the matsuri feeling through the coming Autumn and following Winter ( I could well arrive to next summer considering how many gigas of matsuri photos are on my hard disk 😉
The picture above is from Koenji. The “otokoodori” dancers of the Nagisa ren are approaching the end of the segment where the teammates are waiting.
I love the moments before the dance, when the dancers are so concentrated that the tension and the excitement really permeates the athmosphere. Hiromi Ito san is one of the main dancers in the Shonan Nagisa group. It was really nice seeing her perform in the big stage of koenji Awaodori festival.

Seeing all those happy faces around during the Awaodori almost made me want to leave the camera and start to dance. Almost. 😉
